then, that have changed the world in my opinion -- america and media. i know some will accuse me of bing jingoistic, rah-rah america. but i'm trying to remind us of our better angels. we rebuilt europe, we rebuilt our foreign enemies and turned them into our top allies. we started the yienunited nati 7 37. we spread the idea of human rights around the human world until something amazing happened. we changed expectations. yes, many civilians have died since then in times of war. but now the entire context of war has changed. everyone assumes we're supposed to protect the civilians. as i said, that was partly us. but one more thing helped tremendously, the media. now, let me give you an example in a different context. black people were crushed and abused in this country for centuries. but when we saw for our own eyes people running fire hoses and releasing vicious dogs on black crowds who were peaceably protesting, we couldn't look at ourselves in the mirror anymore, and television was that mirror and itn't co-s to continues to help of the web. so in western syria in 1982, anywher

of the obama doctrine? >> well, there are limits to america's ability to control what's going on in the world or to act every time a slaughter or an atrocity takes place, which occurs in africa, in asia, and other parts of the world every day. and every time an american president has chosen to intervene, to stop an atrocity like the president has here in libya, or president clinton did in bosnia and kosovo, critics will say, oh, but you're not stopping all of the slaughters. and it seems to me that is a very misplaced argument. if american power can help prevent something terrible from happening, the kind of slaughter we know would have happened in benghazi, because gadhafi said he would show them no mercy, and we can do that at relatively little cost with support from the rest of the world, that is a tremendous act on the part of the united states that should be supported. just because you can't do it everywhere doesn't mean you should do it nowhere. >> jamie, speaker john wayboehns office released a statement saying we didn't get the answers we were looking for in reference to president oba

and watch. mick, thank you. >>> president obama has been giving all of his remarks from south america, but here at home, elected leaders on both sides of the aisle are weighing in on the decision to attack. >> the american people through the congress need to hear what obctres gt of oil we import on a daily basis. >> what's going on? we have money for endless wars and can't take care of things at home. >> we don't have a clear picture of who up opposition movement really is. >> so i think you get the gist. joining muss is david goodfriend, and amy, good to have you both. this latin-american trip is almost over. when he gets back, what will he have to -- >> when the president gets back he'll have a lot of congress that will want his ease and he's going to have to tell them very simple things -- why are we there is it what are our objectives? and will the united states be in charge? so far he hasn't had clear answers to that. year own reporter said the president is being misconstrued, so there's question marks there. this could be open-ended. there are question marks there. even the repo

criticism, as a matter of fact. the president has gotten back from his five-day trip to latin america. he returned yesterday afternoon. we do not expect to see the president with the national security meeting that he's going to be convening with the president and vice president biden and other top officials later today. a resolution does not substitute for a u.s. political and military strategy and what the goals are, do we want gadhafi out of power, protecting human rights in libya, protecting libyan citizens from gadhafi's forces? what happens if the coalition dissintegrates? they say that they are going to have days, not weeks and those questions are mounting and george miller, a democratic representative from the east bay area of california, known as a top lieutenant, perhaps the closest person to nancy pelosi, the democratic leader in the house, appearing on the daily rundown, he says that the white house did not sufficiently consult congress on this. he calls the whole thing disturbing and voiced some very strong reservations and meanwhile yesterday on hardball, another msnbc progra

, quote, when we crafted the pledge to america, this was in the late summer, early fall. the assumption we were operating on the president proposed the fiscal year 2011 budget, that is where the $100 billion minimum comes into play. now, that's really clear, right? so when the white house agreed to cut spending by $40 billion from their 2011 proposal, it was making a huge concession. that was basically giving the republicans almost half of what they said they wanted. so what happened next? of course, the republicans said, nope. $40 billion shouldn't count at all. here's what cantor says now. it seems that harry reid and the vice president are going to come forward with $40 billion in cuts. that's not cuts. that's the status quo. and john boehner asked, quote, when will democrats get serious about cutting spending? now, do you understand what just happen there had? everybody is talking about cutting $100 billion from the 2011 budget, include ugh the republicans, right? then obama does it it. he cut $40 billion from exactly what they all agreed to. and the republicans suddenly move the goal
